The Network of Executive Women’s $5 million Future Fund campaign, launched last year, is “on track and ahead of schedule,” powering a robust technology infrastructure, research and insights, and advocacy on behalf of NEW partners and members.
Returns so far include a new website, consolidated database system and an online Member Community to support NEW’s 11,000 members, 105 corporate partners and 21 regional groups.
“NEW’s expanded capabilities will support both organizational and individual transformation,” NEW President and CEO Sarah Alter said.
"The American workplace is being transformed," she noted. "Employees demand diverse, inclusive workplaces that allow everyone to succeed. Industry leaders are looking for best practices and resources to achieve gender equality so that they can leverage the business benefits of women’s leadership. NEW is better prepared than ever to help — and we have even more resources planned for the future.”
NEW's technology initiative is overseen by Christen Ng, a former project manager for Rush Medical University, who joined NEW in October in the new role of vice president technology and research. Ng is responsible for NEW's digital platforms, technology and analytics.
“Christen will help deliver more robust technology, digital experiences for our members, and data and analytics,” Alter said. “Her leadership and our new technical infrastructure will deliver value to our partners by providing deeper insights into trends, best practices through data profiling, and improved communications, community and collaboration.”
